Below are six tips and tricks shared by the owners of Huguenot Fine Chocolates, Denver Adonis, and Danver Windvogel on how to best enjoy chocolate this "sweet" day. 

- Add chopped chocolate to hot milk to make real hot chocolate.

- Be brave and try salted caramel, different chocolates of origin, chocolate with rosemary, ‘South African’ fillings like rooibos and milk tart.

- Try spicy chocolates in flavours like marsala, curry, and chilli. For more extreme versions there is balsamic, biltong, and matcha – a kind of healthy tea.

- Candied lemon rind in white chocolate and South Africa’s wonderful glace fruit like orange rings, ginger, and figs in milk and dark chocolate are delicious.

- You can brush (or use your finger) to coat the inside of non-stick muffin pans to make chocolate cups (sensational filled with ice-cream) or melt chocolate and pour over cookies, biscuits, and cakes.

- The number of variations and uses is as big as your imagination. So go and buy yourself a few. Golden rule: one a day, two on Saturdays. That’s if you have will-power.
